246. Bach’s first secret Inspiration in Arnstadt

246. Bach’s first secret Inspiration in Arnstadt

And they continued to dream their Peony Gondola dream and they saw this vision:

* * *

After 5 weeks a young handsome 18 year old man now stepped in this bakery shop beside the church (Today the Johann Sebatian Bach Church) in Arnstadt and wanted to buy some bread. The bakers daughter was 21 year old, 3 years elder then this man.
Although she did not know that he is the famous Johann Sebastian Bach she was nevertheless very lucky smiling and very friendly as she saw him the first time.
»I take this…and….please I take this little bread, and….could I have this nice little fine fresh breads over there….«
»Of course Sir…«, she said very lucky because he was interested in her new Italian creation.
»…Is this a special creation, this fine bread?«
»Oh, yes, it is a special old baker’s creation from Venice…It was invented by the secret love of the famous painter Palma il Giovane, the Master scholar of Master Titian. She played lute like me…her name was Palmina Albina…«
Johann Sebastian stopped moving as he took the fine white fresh bread in his hands and she was also holding also the same piece with her hands and she smiled. Now he looked up to see her face and to see her eyes, so he realized that she
wear a yellow white traditional cloth.
»Oh, you are a musician! You play the lute…?«, he asked.
»Yes, I studied all the old masters from the 16th century till now and I can play the harpsichord. My mother has one at home…and, and, and I sing Soprano very well..«, she said like an innocent little girl although she was 21 years old.
»5 Weeks ago a great musician played on our new organ as opening concert. He
played so wonderfully. I felt in love but I had never seen him again.«
Johann Sebastian Bach smiled and looked for a long while into her direction. Yes, they are completely alone in this moment, in this little fine bakery shop at Arnstadt beside the church where Bach played.
»Can I have a fresh coffee?«, the young famous organ virtuosi said.
»Of course, sir, please, take a seat over there on the little table I will cook for you fresh coffee«.
Johann Sebastian sat down to the table and felt very inspired.
Inside his heart he heart a storm of music and sound. At this moment something changed inside his heart. Till today Bach wanted only to be a famous Violinist, a famous Organist and a famous harpsichord player.
But now he hears music in his heart and now in this moment he would like to compose a little piece for lute maybe a „Praeludium in C-Major“.
Johann Sebastian Bach understood: Palmina did not only do her Job as baker to make traditional bread every day, SHE CREATED A NEW CREATION: The little fine white fresh breads in Venice – which are known also today in the 18th century at Arnstadt.

This is like a musician not only playing music, but is also making own creation as music compositions.

Johann Sebastian Bach is inspired: »I have to create also an own composition like
the creative bakers daughter…«.
During she cooked smiling the coffee and prepared it so nice Bach felt „at home“,
now sitting here. He took a piece of paper and started to write a piece which is known in the future as „Praeludium in C-Major“ of the „Well tempered piano – part I“.
But in its version for lute. (Bach wrote later several versions about this praeludium in the future).
The bakers daughter stopped working as she saw that his handsome man is now writing his first composition in his life. Yes, this moment is the beginning of over thousands of compositions he will write in the future.

246 Praeludium in C BWV 846

picture – manuscript of Bach’s Praeludium in C- Major, BWV 846

The bakers daughter understood and could feel „SHE is the women who made Johann Sebastian a composer“, she is his Saint Cecilia and she is his inspiration.
Now she brought him the fresh coffee in a nice can and smiled as she saw how fast Bach wrote on his music sheet and that he wrote „Praeludium“ and he wrote „Lute“ on it. She got red on her innocent cheeks and she felt now that she is not a little girl any more.
A mystic warm energy came from heart to heart between him and her.

Bach smiled and the bakers daughter smiled.

Palmina went this morning along the San Marco Place and bought this fresh printed ‚Worldpress‘ newspaper.

She started reading and said: »Look Palma, they write about you…and,and, the Cardinale will today come to Venice….read, read, looook,look, Palma…“

Palma took the newspaper and read:

»…the highest court announced today that „…it IS NOT A CRIME to help too much poor and ill persons… “ The orders given by Cardinale Hell from the Vatican State to arrest the innocent Cardinal Borromaeus are not accepted by the highest court in order that Cardinale Hell is now declared as officially as criminal.

PEOPLE SAY HE IS A SAINT

Cardinale Borromaeus did found a lot of institutions to protect poor children and girls from child prostitution in the tradition to the Saint Nicolaus.
Today he will visit the „Le Zitelle“-institution on Giudecca island and the girls orchestra will play Welcome concert in their church and in their beautiful gardens behind the buildings of the „Santa Maria de la Presentatione“.

The Republic of Venice, the R.O.V, announced a very big fire work to this special day in the history for protection of children, protection of music therapy and art.

 
A NEW TRADITION IS BORN IN VENICE

„This feast should now be that big every year“ the representatives of the R.O.V., the Republic of Venice announced now, „…the feast is a traditional feast as ‚Thank you‘ for surviving the Pest“ – but now we decided to make it as one of the biggest feast in the year in Venice“.

A BIG BRIDGE WILL BE BUILD

Along the new feast there will be a new long bridge only for the duration of the days of the „Il Redentore feast“.
The people can go along the big bridge to go over the water to the „Church il Redentore“.

* * *

After they read the newspaper standing on the San Marco Place a lot of pigeon had landed around them and looked up to them as if they did understand the newspaper.
Now the pigeons flew to the Gondola which was waiting for them at the other end of the San Marco Place.

Both went there and Palmina and Palma entered a Gondola .Palma helped her to enter the Gondola and smiled.

Palmina smiled and said: »Palma, I am so proud on you. Cardinale Borromaeus will visit our „Le Zitelle Orchestra“ on Giudecca and the „Cantico delle Creature“ will be performed, and, and your painting will be presented at the Chiesa Il Redentore.
Oh, Palma, oh, Palma, what a big feast today will be. Oh, I love you, my painter, my composer, my love letter writer, my children protector….“

And Palma and Palmina looked sideways to the island Giudecca and smiled.
Soon the big traditional ‚Il Redentore festival‘ will start here in Venice.

Palmina put her hand on Palma’s hand very tender and Palma could feel it.
Now he looked at her beautiful smiling face. He realised how much he loves her and the sun made her hairs beautiful.

Slowly the Gondola moved to the other side in the direction of Giudecca Island.
They will have a few hours of rehearsal for the concert today at evening.
The innocent girls came all with their music instruments and also the girls and children choir was there.
As they saw Palma and Palmina coming to the Le Zitelle they waved all from their windows.

„Look, Palma and Palmina are coming to make a rehearsal with us. Let us take all our music instruments and come at the concert stage in the garden.

And all the girls and children came in the Le Zitelle Garden to sit at their place on the stage to be ready to make a rehearsal of Palma’s Hymnus.

How often Cardinal Hell tried to pay millions to stop this music-social projects for children. How often he gave a lot of money to people to sabotage this social projects. But now Cardinal Borromaeus is their strong hand of the heaven to stopp this intrigues against these poor children.

And now they made the rehearsal like that:

At he evening the saint Cardinale Borromaeus came and the fireworks in Venice begun and it looked fantastic like that, so that also painters made paintings of this historic moment in modern civilization – to protect children, art and culture.

223. Traditional Dialogue of Cultures in Venice

223. Traditional Dialogue of Cultures in Venice

 

picture 01 - Palma_il_Giovane_-_Doge_Pietro_Loredan_Beseeching_the_Virgin_-_WGA16909
picture – Palma il Giovane -Doge Pietro Loredan*) Beseeching the Virgin (Wikipedia)

This Painting by Palma il Giovane is on the big famous Dogan“s Palace (Palazzo Ducale) where always delegations of different cultures officially had a intercultural friendship event as peace DIALOGUE between the mighty Republic of Venice and the business partners from all over the world like Europe, Asia and Africa.

* * *

They continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision like that:

* * *

„Oh, so much Cultures we have on this world. Fantastic!!!!l „, Palmina said like a young girl with her soft fine voice and continued smiling with this asian-like beautiful eyes:

„…this beautiful different cultures with their different music and art traditions,… fantastic…
our world is so big, I would like to huge it ..“, Palmina said and hugged Palma.

„..this beautiful cultures are often visiting Venice, our mighty Republic of Venice the – R.O.V. and I often play at the welcome concert in the Dogan’s Palace on our San Marco Place…often an artwork from you or from me…“, Palmina said euphoric.

„…From all over the world the representative of their culture are coming and greeting our Republic from Europe Asia, Africa. From Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh, China, Cipan (Japan), Korea, Philippines, Russia…Armenia, Cyprus- Byzantium…bringing a message to us of peace and friendship…They want all a peacefull relation, a cultural dialogue to our mighty Republic of Venice and of course good economic relations with us Europeans…“, Palma said very wise.

picture 2-3 – detail of Palmas painting in the Palazzo Ducale (Dogan’s Palace) in Venice

„So it is important that all cultures are in a harmonic peaceful relation…in a good DIALOGUE!
…Palma, didn’t you compose a music dialogue for Chinese lute Pipa (or other Chinese or other Asian Instruments) and Viola da braccio as the Chinese delegation did visit our Republic with their huge Chinese ships, waiting outside the „Lido“, coming with hundreds of guests to bring a peaceful culture program, a cultural exchange dialogue concert? Didn’t you?“

„Oh yes, I will never forget this. It was years ago…Oh, Palmina, my Dialogue for Pipa琵琶 and Viola. Do you remember the begining melody?“, Palma asked.

Palmina took her Lute and plugged slowly and smiling with shining eyes, only a girl or a women has, if she is loving…

G-d-e-a

Palmina smiled to Palma and send to his heart a warm and golden, tender light energy playing her lute.

Palma could feel this also in his deep heart.

After that,now Palma took his Viola and plugged:

c-g-d‘-a‘

„Do you remember, Palmina?“

„Yes, your composition you wrote as Dialogue for my instrument and your instrument…It was dedicated as dialogue between the East Cultures and the West Cultures between the Ming Dynasty representatives and Venice.
Yes, Palma, I remember very good and I love this creation from you very much!“

picture 04

Palmina gave Palma a tender kiss on his cheek and Palma could feel this.

Now Palma composed deep in his heart a music reflection and variation to the main „Dialogue Music Theme“, the main melody of this dialogue composition like that and Palmina put her head and Palma’s side to hear this music coming directly from Palma’s heart and what she listened was this:

And they continued to dream their Peony Gondola dream:

* * *

The Gondola moved now slowly along the big Canale Grande.
After a while of silence and looking alongside the beautiful houses.
Palmina and Palma looked at each other.
Palmina played wonderfully for him, although it was a rehearsal for the concert at the Ospedaletto where Crezia is with her broken shoulder.

After her little concert in the Gondola Palma showed her his new music score the music score of „Le Reve – Dreaming Expressions“ for Piano and Violin.

And Palmina smiled and hugged him long and gave him a tender kiss.

Later at the evening concert Palmina played wonderfully and Crezia had tears of joy in her eyes. She felt no pain and the wounds of her broken shoulder seemed to heal faster than expected.

Palmina is not only a good soloist, a good music teacher, she can heal also old wounds.

It was a nice concert and Palma was so lucky to see her playing her music instrument for her.

Palma smiled – Palmina smiled.

163. »I compose during you are sleeping«

163. »I compose during you are sleeping«
    

And they flew with their Peony-Gondola along the stars at the evening sky.

Palmina laid her head on Palma’s side and said:
»I go now sleeping. Good night.«
»Oh, Good night. I will compose during you are sleeping.«, Palma answered.
»Wow, great, my Palma, my composer and writer…«
And she send him a tender kiss and Palma could receive it and she hold his right hand and Palma could feel it and he was lucky to feel her.

Palma wrote some notes on his music score and Palmina could feel and see him in her heart writing for her a composition.
Palmina smiled. Yes, she is really looking forward to get a new composition by her Jacopo Palma il Giovane.
It was their common secret and no one has the right to destroy such a beautiful heart-to-heart music-painting friendship, isn’t it ?; and why should this make any sense and for whom?

And they continued to dream at this 23 o’clock ( 11 p.m.) and they saw this:

                             * * * 

Palmina wrote and smiled with shining eyes:

»Dear Palma!

I am now writing during my concert-tour travelling to Vienna.
I hope I can see you soon!
In 15 hours we will arrive Vienna, the world city of culture and music!
How fine that our »La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra« can play a charity concert there against international child-prostitution.

How wise is Master Lao! He could warn us: There are criminal enemy’s who wants to destroy our communication and our La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra. Therefore we have so much soldiers and bodyguards. I am carefully not to be influenced by a fake-bodyguard. I order always two body guards, so in the worse case only one is a fake-bodyguard and the other is a areal one…
I think I could figure out who is the fake-bodyguard, who is paid by the dark sugar earth network administrators and who wants to isolate me from contacts to other artists in Vienna.

I hope the criminals are not stealing my letters which I wrote to you.
I always write a copy so that I can give you my copy today in our Peony-Gondola hour today at 23 o’clock (11 p.m.).

How thankful I am that I can see you daily in our Peony-Gondola, the timeless, spaceless dimension. YES, no criminal evil soul is allowed to enter.

I am always thinking on you, my dear music-painting friend, since we spoke the first time in this live.
Our friendship is something that goes beyond primitive rules or traditions.The results of our friendship will have a positive influence of the world’s history, I believe…
We both like traditions and we both love them, because we are artists and to be an artist it means to know them, but I know: Art means not only tradition, but also tradition.
So this is your mission in Venice as artist as Master Scholar of Master Titian and I will always be with you to help you like a flying pigeon or a little bird in a cage beside your composing harpsichord.
More important it is that we THINK ON EACH OTHER and that we like us and that we love us.

How was your first painting lessons at the gardens of the Ming dynasty family?
Are they listening to you, are they talented?
Did you learn a little bit about Asian Art and music, especially the music instruments?

I can’t wait to see and to feel and to hear your heart beating at 11 p.m.

With much love and tenderness,

Your white Pigeon, your little yellow canary bird,

   Your you loving Palmina«


        * * *

And after they saw this Vision Palmina tried to touch Palma’s right hand and he could feel it and she kissed soft on his right cheek and he could feel it.

Every time she made this Palma smiled and he tried also to hold her hand and to kiss her soft.

The Peony-Gondola helped to unite them; to exchange ideas and feelings; to exchange love and light. In this Gondola there is no distance between two loving souls.
It is the best basic for a common cultural exchange.

»Palma?«
»Hm?«
»Why we don’t make a common composition?«
»A common composition?«
»Yes. Listen, Palma:
I mean YOU start to compose a few notes and then I compose a few notes as ANSWER…«
»Ah, good!… and then I compose again a few notes!
THAT’S A GOOD IDEA! Let’s do this in our Peony Gondola.«
»Yes. Palma, let us make a music dialogue of our hearts and write this down.
We are the first in music history doing this!«
»Yes, we are also the first in music history who loves deeply from our hearts without any support by…«
»…psst, don’t say it. My mum likes you and your mum likes me…«
Palma smiled and hold his strong arm around her and she laid her head on Palma’s right side to listen his heart and to be near to him. She gives him warm feeling and he gives her warm feelings even it is outside in the world sometimes cold and hard.

And they dreamed both now in music tones as an inner-heart dialogue and the Peony Gondola flew along the stars at the evening sky.

And as they flew along the stars at the evening sky they heard a music piece like that:

162. Palmina wrote a short message

picture – traditional Chinese Wood-engraving Artwork

And they continued to dream their Peony-Gondola Dream and they saw this:

* * *

Palmina took her Pipa Lute and played the »Thinking on each other Melody« which Palma composed for her. Always if Palmina thought intensive on her Palma il Giovane she played this melody on her Pipa Lute or Venetian Lute.
Suddenly Palma felt a warm tender feeling in and around his heart. It felt like a Peony-Pink-Cyan White light.
Palm felt that Palmina is able to huge Palma only with her love and light fully thoughts.

Palma started suddenly to smile as he realized that and he started to think on her and he played the same Melody on his Viola to express his love for her.
After that he wrote:

»Venice, 15 – –

Dear Palmina!

Today I could feel deeply in my heart that you wrote me a message.
Sure the criminal administrators of the dark sugar earth social network erased it so I will not get any message. Maybe European laws will soon control them and judge them as we all expect it.
How good that we meet today in our Peony Gondola.

I miss you so much. I can’t wait to meet you again in the Peony Gondola.
Today I will hold my painting lesson at the gardens on Giudecca Island. I hope my students can follow my teaching.
I will also learn about Asian painting traditions, especially about traditional Chinese Wood-engraving Artwork. And sure Master Lao will tell us more about cultural traditions…
There are also a lot of Buddhist nuns, some are very,very young and they will held a prayer ceremony in the rooms of the Gardens of the Ming Dynasty Family on Giudecca Island in Venice.
That remembers me on Marco Polo.
Marco Polo was long time in China and was also a high grade politician and governor, personally selected by the Chinese Emperor.
On his way to the Emperor Marco Polo felt in love in a little young buddhist nun, the Chinese Princess. Later he married her and brought her to Venice and lived secretly there in the Gardens of Giudecca Island behind the well protected Walls.

Yes, Palmina, Marco Polo loves her, I mean he loves you, I mean he is still loving you, my inspiring Pigeon and secret princess.

Today a Pigeon was flying and looking like the saint spirit pigeon. She flew directly over me. Maybe a sign or an inspiring moment…

I am writing down the music we heard as we hugged so long in our Gondola.

I love you, my Pigeon, my Inspiration.

Your Jacopo Palma il Giovane.«
